Oh this weekend is so awesome.
I have done absolutely nothing of importance today except my laundry. And it felt fantastic.
This is the first weekend in at least a month that I haven't been loaded with homework.
I slept late. Which also felt fantastic.
I took a nice, long, hot shower. Also fantastic.
A day off. And the homework I have to do tomorrow will be a cake walk.
I'm still on a emotional high from last night, too. Oh, and interesting fact: that guy that asked me to dance? I found out today from some Facebook examination that he is a cheerleader and won Homecoming King today.
That fact is a shining example of how God is showing me how my life can be redeemed if I just make a little bit of effort. How I can't assume everyone is like the people I put up with in high school. How if I don't become scared and trust, I can meet some pretty amazing people. How my life is simply different now.
A few years ago, I probably wouldn't have even gone to a dance like this. If I did, I almost certainly wouldn't dance and be a goofball. And there's no way in the world I would've had the courage to ask Mr. Popular to dance with me (I asked him the second time). I used to be terrified of trusting popular people like Drew. Because the popular kids were always the ones who hurt me. But with him? I can just tell he's different. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think I've met someone pretty special. :)
It may be unfulfilled, it may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered
Is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see, it will not be unredeemed
